A virtual assistant is an administrative assistant that works remotely. In the traditional office setting, Administrative Assistants work in the office, but online, Virtual Assistants (VA’s) work from their own office, use their own equipment and provide various services to businesses, executives, entrepreneurs or anyone who requires administrative help. Assignments are negotiated by phone but can be solidified via e-mail, phone, fax, manual pick-up/delivery, or post office mail. With all of the technological advances of our time, information is easily communicated between client and Virtual Assistant. Having an in-house Full-Time Employee (FTE) is not necessary and can be a cost burden.
Working with a Virtual Assistant can save time and money.
With a VA, you have:
- NO employee-related taxes, insurance, or benefits to pay
- Minimal to NO training
- NO extra office space or equipment costs
- Payment only for materials and time spent on a project
- The ability to stay on schedule
